I like how this guy constantly calls out Rickenbacker's for what they are...

    I love Dave"s clips. Next best thing to leaning over his shoulder. He sure doesn't pull any punches in this very droll monologue.

    It's called schtick. It gets him followers because people are entertained by it, but it's certainly has no authority or expertise behind it.

    The truth is, like them or not, Rickenbackers are exceptionally well crafted. Just pop off the pickguard and take a peek at how carefully and neatly the electronics are soldered. It's called craftsmanship, even if their finishes are finicky down the years. There's a reason why they're so popular, and it isn't because they're crap.

    I'm sorry, but the discussion on dual truss rods around [3:30] "when the neck warps, you're gonna want them".... that's some funny stuff.

    Dave insults nearly every instrument he works on..
  13. Funny maybe but total BS like 99% of the rest of the stuff he says. I've been playing them since 1977, have owned many and have never any of the problems he's had, maybe he just doesn't have enough talent to work on them and/or play them, it does take a little extra talent to play a Ric which I think is the reason so many players bash them.

    Hope that you don't mind my stepping in to fix for you. I only take such initiative because everyone agrees I have the best words.

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    Boisterous denigration is often a mask for deep-seated ineptitude and fear.
